“One of a kind!”: James Knappett’s “phenomenal” Fitzrovia 20-seater – entered via the hotdog-and-Champagne bar that shares its name (see Bubbledogs) – “takes creative gastronomy to a new level” and is “well deserving of its second Michelin star”. Cooking behind a horseshoe-shaped counter with the kitchen at its centre, “the chefs are good company”, and their conversation helps “nail the balance between a very interesting gastronomic journey and a lovely ‘feel-at-home’ atmosphere”. Dishes “celebrating high quality produce are effortlessly executed and perfectly sized”; and “with enough innovation to keep you interested, while not alienating anyone”. “One of the best meals of my life”“I barely noticed that it lasted three hours!”

“The most memorable meal ever, for all the right reasons!” – James Knappett’s multi-course set meal, prepared in front of just 20 diners sitting around a horseshoe bar in Fitzrovia, is a “fun and fascinating spectacle”, producing “utterly astonishing”, “truly superb food”. “Kinda expensive... but very, very worthwhile to visit once for the experience”. Arrival is equally unusual, through the hotdog-and-Champagne bar that shares the premises (see also Bubbledogs). STOP PRESS: On October 1 2018, Michelin surprised everyone by awarding Kitchen Table two stars – one of their better awards of recent times.

“One of the best experiences ever” – James Knappett’s “truly unique” venture, tucked away behind his and his wife’s adjoining hot dog place – is as “absolutely fascinating” as it is unexpected. Seated at stools around the 20-seat kitchen table creates “great intimacy with the team” and the daily changing 12-course array of dishes (“on the whole sourced from the UK, and very well explained”) are “from another world”. “It’s cosy, it’s unpretentious, it’s delicious, it’s friendly, it’s excellent value”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"My husband ordered Kitchen Table at Home for my birthday during the January lockdown. The food was fantastic and it was so beautifully presented with a lovely menu sealed in an envelope with wax and the cooking instructions and ingredients were simple to follow with everything labelled and placed in the box impeccably. Only problem was we didn't have enough tiny pans for the jus and sauces! We managed though. Enjoyed it all, and so cleverly adapted for home cooking and eating. A real treat. "
